Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga both traveled to Connecticut to meet with Lorraine Warren prior to filming.

This is the first film by James Wan that did not involve Leigh Whannell in any way.

Lili Taylor researched The Exorcist (1973) to prepare for her role.

Marks the third collaboration between James Wan and Patrick Wilson. The pair also worked together in Insidious (2010) and Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013)

The first film directed by James Wan to not feature a cameo of the Billy puppet doll from the Saw (2004) film series.

Not only marks the second film composer Joseph Bishara has scored a James Wan film, but it is the second time he has played a demon figure for Wan. He portrays the demon embodiment of Bathsheba Sherman and previously played a lipstick-faced demon in Insidious (2010).

A movie based on the Perron family house has been in the works for over 20 years. It first surfaced when Ed Warren played a tape of his interview with Carolyn Perron to producer Tony DeRosa-Grund.

Andrea Perron wrote a three-part book based on her experiences in the house titled "House of Darkness, House of Light." Experiences written about in her book also appear in the film. Perron cites the film as a work of art and not a work of fiction.

The evil witch in the film has been played by one of the music composers
